Setting up as default for new domains – DirectAdmin

1) You’ll need to setup the virtualhost for apache.  This can be accomplished by adding a 2nd virtualhost along side the domains main one.

cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates
cp virtual_host.conf custom
cd custom

You’ll need to edit the newly copied virtual_host.conf (or virtual_host2.conf if you’re using apache 2) file and make the file look like (just add the blue to the end of whatever you currently have)
